The Walk Around project is an assistive walking device custom designed and fabricated to allow the client to walk safely and autonomously. The client is a woman in her seventies, with a specific set of medical conditions who uses a wheelchair as her primary means of transportation for everyday movements around the house. The client has used a variety of market assistive walking devices, but has found no luck in a system that is safe for the client to use autonomously. With the fabrication of the Walk Around device, the client was provided with a safe to use assistive walking device that will provide more independence in their everyday life.
